These scanners can be purchased on Amazon, and either one will work. Purchase links below:

Step 1: Turn On Bluetooth on iOS Device

To get started connecting your ring scanner to Link, make sure you have access to an iOS device running Link as well as your ring scanner.

  1. Open your iOS device and navigate to Settings

  2. Scroll down and tap “Bluetooth”

  3. Make sure Bluetooth is enabled

Step 2: Enable Pairing Mode on Ring Scanner

  1. With your scanner in hand, tap the button on the side once to turn on, it should beep once

  2. Once turned on, hold down the button on the side of the scanner for 8-10 seconds until you hear the scanner beep

  3. At this point, let go of the button, and the scanner will start flashing. Your scanner is now in "pairing" mode
